Own Boat Tuition

RYA Powerboat > Own Boat Tuition



Own boat tuition is ideal for anyone who would like to learn more about their new boat, or consolidate knowledge of a boat they’ve owned for a while.

Having one of Urban Truant’s friendly and knowledgeable skippers on board is a reassuring ‘safety net’ whilst you practice berthing, anchoring, operating your boat at high speed, and more. Even just having someone on hand to help you go through the electronics or get answers to those niggly questions you have will improve your knowledge and give you the confidence to enjoy using your boat with friends and family.

No two sessions are the same. At Urban Truant we are responsive to your objectives and the itinerary will be shaped (and re-shaped) entirely to what you want to achieve.

No experience required.
